Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a postdoctoral position. The deadline for applying is June 01, 2020.

A 14 month position is available for a Research Associate with expertise in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD, particularly minimally-verbal ASD) and/or the cognitive neuroscience of receptive language processing and/or electroencephalography (EEG) acquisition and analysis. The post-holder will work with Dr. Alexandra Woolgar on a project using neuroimaging to index receptive language processing in individuals who do not speak. In particular, we seek to identify neural markers of receptive language in individual minimally-verbal children with ASD. The position would suit an open minded applicant with experience working with children and a passion for exploiting cognitive neuroscientific methods to answer important questions about cognition in this population.

Applicants should hold a PhD (or equivalent) in cognitive neuroscience or related field, and be certified in administration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule. Experience of working with children and experience of EG acquisition and analysis is essential. Experience using advanced analysis approaches (e.g., multivariate analyses) and previous research involving individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders is desirable.

We are committed to the engagement and retention of the best possible talent and to creating an environment that encourages excellence in scientific research by supporting and encouraging equality and diversity. Candidates from minority groups and/or women are especially encouraged to apply.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service check (enhanced with children and adults’ barred lists).

For inquiries, contact Alex Woolgar: Alexandra.woolgar@mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk . Information on the unit and research programme can be found at http://www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/ and www.woolgarlab.org
